The list is actually 17 shows - it includes 8/30/83 Hult Center. (Not, I think, many people's pick for "best of '83"!)

And it is not a list of the upcoming releases. Two days ago, the list was quite different:

6/10/73 Robert F Kennedy Stadium, Washington
6/30/73 Universal Amphitheatre, Universal City
9/11/73 College Of William And Mary, Williamsburg
5/19/74 Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland
6/23/74 Jai-Alai Fronton, Miami
7/31/74 Dillon Stadium, Hartford
9/28/75 Lindley Meadows, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco
6/14/76 Beacon Theatre, New York
10/3/76 Cobo Hall, Detroit, MI
5/26/77 Baltimore Civic Center, Baltimore, MD
11/4/77 Colgate University, Hamilton, NY
1/22/78 McArthur Court, Eugene, OR

So I would expect the list to change periodically.
While these may be drawn from some list of "top" shows to tease people, it's certainly not an announcement of what the next several years of Dead releases is going to be!

Wow: 5-26-77? Least successful show of the tour IMO. After the perfection of 5-25, it sounds to me like everything Jerry does in Baltimore is banal. I've wondered whether his extravagant harmonic experimentation in the 5-28 show was his own reaction to the tedium of his playing on 5-26.

Baltimore 05/26/77 is a musically beautiful performance as were several of the May-June 1977 offerings.

Thanks for the heads-up on the 06/04/77 Forum show, i've been in the eggshell before and appreciate just how close to the stage these AKG D224Es are.
